Belt Sanding

Many years ago now, I got the Black and Decker “Power File”. That may be one name for it, but it really is a very narrow belt sander.

There are also air-powered versions, and Fein have one as well, if you are looking for an upmarket brand


Seems the concept is widening, and it may be that I just haven’t seen them before. Again, not called a belt sander, but there is this version by WorkSharp for shaping knives


And this version from Fein for pipe polishing. Never knew pipe polishing was taken so seriously!! Metabo have a version as well.


I’m sure there are applications to woodworking- anyone seen or used one of these in the workshop?
